CustomerJULES from CENTENNIAL CO

Door would not close on its own. Stopped 1" short of closing unless pushed in all the way

This was easy. Removed the plastic cover at the top hinge. Removed the 3 screws at the top hinge. Lifted the door off of the bottom hinge and laid it on it's side. The part that was worn out is the "natural door closer". It looks like this part will need to be replaced every few years, it is made of plastic and was ground down to nubs. Remove the screws holding it down and replace it with the new one. Lubed it up with some WD40 to get rid of squeaks. I also replaced the lower hinge pin, but I don't think that was necessary.

Door made grinding sound and not close easely

Most of the time was sent to removing and replacing door shelves. Pry off upper hinge cover. Easy, it's only plastic. Remove 3 fastener from top hinge and remove hinge. Lift door off lower hinge. Lay door down on table let handle hang over edge. Remove door closer attach fastener. Remove and replace door closer. Pry lower hinge up and out. Tap new lower hing pin into place. Replace door, upper hinge and hinge cover. Had to replace Door Closer and Hing Pin together; both were worn and needed replacing.

The door would not shut by itself.

Removed the top hinge of the door. Lift door off the lower hinge. Unscrewed the "natural closer" from the bottom of the door and replaced with new part. Pulled off the lower hinge from the lower bracket and replaced with new hinge pin. Replaced and realigned door. Piece of cake!

CustomerDan Gable from Londonderry NH

Lower hinge was wearing out from door weight, was getting stiff to close.

Place two 2x4s, stacked on each other on floor parallel and close to refrigerator, leaving room for socket handle and extensions to three lower hinge bolts. Placed 3 foot 2x4 at right angles on top of the parallel stack of 2x4s, with one end under right hand refrigerator door. Placed 20-30 lb bucket of rice on other end of 2x4 to exert upward pressure on door, raising door bottom off of hinge pin. Removed three hinge screws. Replaced Natural Door Closer and Lower Hinge pin. Screwed three hinge pin screws back in. Removed fulcrum.

CustomerJames from Texarkana TX

Ref door would not close properly causing excess condensation... this in turn caused water to leak under door and rusted the door hinge.

Simply remove the ref door bracket at top and remove the door from the bottom hinge pin...Then replace the lower hinge, hinge pin and door closer... Reinstall the door and adjust for level...This took only 25 min to fix.
